While the Fourth of July is typically known for as a day where all of America celebrates its independence with large gatherings and fire works, those two events can sometimes lead some into trouble.

However in Pike County at least, that was not the case, according to Brundidge Police Chief Moses Davenport and Troy Police Spokesman Sgt. Benny Scarbrough.

Both said there were no reports of injuries of any kind during the holiday, as well and no property damage or arrests

“There were only a few things,” Scarrbough said.

“We had a few fire calls which came from fire works but that is pretty routine for this time of the year.”

In Brundidge, like in Troy, everyone was able to celebrate the birth of America safely.

“We got a few calls here and there, but nothing out of the ordinary,” Davenport said.

“We didn’t have any reports of any damage or injuries.”

Along with the two police departments, Troy Fire Chief Thomas Outlaw also said nothing out of the ordinary occurred on Sunday.

“Everything went off without any problems,” he said.

“It was a pretty routine Fourth of July for us.”
